If you’re gonna Play the Game, you’d better play to win. Of course, when you’re Statik Selektah, and you have two spitters as skilled as Big K.R.I.T. and Freddie Gibbs backing you up, it’s hard to do anything but dominate. The lead single off the Boston DJ/producer’s forthcoming full-length, this cut finds Statik serving up a wistful, piano-driven beat to back his collaborators as they detail the circumstances they had to overcome to become the major players they are today. Like what you’re hearing? There’s more on the way—Selektah’s Population Control LP drops October 25, via Showoff/Duck Down, and fans can pre-order the digital version here.
